Madeira Premium Stabilizer Avalon Wash Away Film 50cm x 25m Roll
50cm Wide x 25 Meters Madeira Avalon Film Wash Away water soluble embroidery stabilizer, 50% thicker than solvy.
Dissolves QUICKLY in cold water.
You can draw a design on it and then either pin it to the fabric or hoop it over the fabric.
Then sew through it to embroider the design onto the fabric.
Soluble stabilizers are used over napped fabrics to stop the pile showing through the embroidery, or having the stitches disappear all together into the pile.
DO NOT use water soluble stabilisers on velvet or corduroy.
Several sheets of Avalon can be ironed together using a Teflon Pressing Sheet (or Gladbake) for stabilizing Press or hoop tulle between two layers of Avalon to make your own lace. Scraps of Avalon can be used on top of your fabric when making buttonholes on the machine. Mark the location of each buttonhole. Using Avalon will give you crisper neater & more even buttonholes.
After finishing your project, tear away the larger areas of Avalon inside and outside the design. Keep these pieces to be ironed togeter to make a bigger piece, save for buttonholes or for making Solvy Soup.
SOLVY SOUP Use your left over scraps of soluble stabilizers to make your own liquid stabilizer. Use the equivalent of 0.9m of Solvy in 200ml water. If you want it thinner or thicker, adjust either the amount of Solvy or the amount of water in the mix. To use it brush it onto your fabric and either let it dry naturally or use a hair dryer. It will stabilize very sheer fabrics and will wash out completely.
It is very good for decorative stitches on heirloom sewing and similar where using a regular tearaway will distort the stitches as you try to tear away the stabilizer.
To dissolve large areas of Avalon, spray lightly with water. After a bit remove the dissolved Avalon with a dampened cloth or sponge. For small areas, spray lightly with water and it will dissolve and disappear with the first wash.
